Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I am a tough customer to please. I am constantly accused of being OCD. Simply put, this piece is top-quality. It looks like an $800 book shelf. It has very deep shelves, and is about 7+ feet tall. I'm 6' 1", and used to being able to see the tops of furniture. It's very nice to have such a quality piece. Every part of it is wood, down to the backdrop (the backdrop is about a centimeter thick or so, but is solid wood). VERY heavy, and just quality. Thank you overstock!
By the way...I bought the plymouth desk to accompany this bookshelf. They look excellent together! Top-notch.
I ordered two bookcases, which arrived very quickly and intact as has been my usual experience with Overstock orders. These are large, heavy bookcases. They are solid, and the finish is beautiful. It is the darkest brown, and it blends with the black-finish furniture also in my study. They really look black unless the sunlight is on them, when you can see the brown come through. Not difficult to put together, and they really don't look like furniture that we assembled at home! I've come to expect strong chemical smells from imported home-assembled furniture, but these bookcases had none so we were pleasantly surprised. Nice, tall, solid bookcases that look like they came from a fine furniture store, and the style will blend with anything from modern to traditional. I'm thinking of ordering one or two more!
Once it's put together, this is a sturdy and very stylish piece of furniture. The assembly process isn't difficult, just a bit tedious. It took me about an hour to put the bookcase together. Just be careful to make sure to pound the pieces together snugly before you twist the lock nuts. If you don't, small gaps will remain between pieces that could affect the stability. It would also be a good idea to have a second person to help, since these big boys weigh about 140 pounds when built. Overall, this is an excellent product and a good value. As always, the Overstock delivery service is quick and the packaging leaves you with enough foam and cardboard to build a weekend retreat.
This bookshelf is a sturdy, attractive piece with huge space (my tallest books can stand up) between shelves. They are also quite deep. It took me and one friend about an hour to put together. It is heavy and takes two people to move the boxes and to stand up.
Great tall bookcase. Quality wise this thing is great. Color looks black but is a dark espresso. Only way you'd know is direct sunlight. It matches black trimmed seating very well.
The only cons are very minor and come with putting it together.
1. The little inserts that the shelfs rest on, some of them had the heads just a little big for the holes. It's just a little piece of metal that is either from where they cut the pieces or hammered them in manufacturing. Easily fixed with a file or with a pair of wire cutters. Note I only had this problem on 3 of them. The rest went in (with some twisting).
2. The back piece is folded in half (for shipping) and taped on the backside. Problem with this is that the foam that it's packed in stuck to the tape inbetween the two pieces. Took a couple minutes to get it all off.
Overall it's a great book case and a great value. The two very minor problems shouldn't keep you from getting this if you like the style.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exact
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality, only quibble is the seam in the back panel and some of the shelf holders were flattened out
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Very Accurate
Nice bookcase. It was easy to assemble. I did it myself in about an hour. It is tall, almost 7'. The color is espresso, but it looks black in my room, which is what I wanted.
As other reviewers stated, the back of the bookcase is folded in half, longwise, for delivery. Therefore, there is a line down the middle of the back of bookcase. I found it very noticeable and thought it made the bookcase look cheap. To solve this, I simply removed the back. The walls in my room are a terra cotta color, so I think it looks nice to have the wall color come through. It also helps lighten up the bookcase since the finish is very dark. The items on the shelves are more visible now.
I think the manufacturer could improve this bookcase by making the back piece 2 individual pieces, with them joining at the fixed shelf.
We've had our eye on this for awhile now as we shopped around for a larger, real wood bookcase to replace my narrow, apartment-sized bookcase from **** which came with me when I moved into my husband's house. We waited for a good sale, asked for OS gift cards for Christmas, and then we finally bought this bookcase a few weeks ago. We figured, with almost 140 5-star ratings, how could we go wrong? Well, the answer is: you can't go wrong. This is a well-made, good-looking and very reasonably-priced real wood bookcase. This thing is tall and wide, filling a large expanse of our living room wall, allowing for several arrangements of books--horizontal and vertical--plus ample room for decorative items, which is what we wanted. It took my husband about 2 hrs to put together solo, admitting that it only took that long because he had the TV on during assembly and kept getting distracted. In terms of assembly, all the parts needed were included & functioned the way they were supposed to, there were no glitches fitting all the pieces of the unit together, and everything came in new condition, nothing broken or damaged, I have only 1 caution, and that is to pay close attention to the dimensions before you buy, because this thing really is a beast. I have zero complaints, and along with the other reviewers, I would highly recommend this bookcase,
We wanted a tall bookshelf for our bedroom, and the reviews of the Plymouth Bookshelf seemed promising. We weren't disappointed. The bookshelf came in two separate (and very heavy) boxes. Delivered under two weeks from order date to boot.
I knew ahead of time, thanks to others reviews, that the color looks almost black when not in natural sunlight, and I would have to agree. Although we'd wanted something a little lighter in color, the quality of the bookshelf more than makes up for this fact. You definitley need to people to put this together. The UPS guy cursed having to carry these heavy cases down our block. (We live on a parkway and so he had to park on a side street. Very heavy boxes.
On a final note, there are other bookshelves out there for less money, but I don't think you'd be as happy as you would with this one.
This is a solid wood bookcase at a great price. The bookcase arrived in 2 boxes and it wasn't difficult to assemble. The bookcase is exactly what I was looking for. I am very happy with the final product.
Hello oceanbayview! . It has four open shelves that can be adjusted to different heights, while the second shelf up from the bottom is fixed to the frame. Thanks for shopping with us!overstockcustomercare2 on Nov 26, 2013
I want to put a TV on one shelf - what is the inside dimension between the sides?kmb100 on May 25, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
A TV won't fit, unless its a 9" one. The width is about 30 inches, height about 10 inches between shelves. This is a bookshelf and I am able to fit two wine racks in it, as well as momentous from sporting events, beer steins, bobble heads, and sport team blankets.olyaz on May 28, 2013
I'm going to guess about 16 inches. Nice depth. Holds a wine rack comfortably, so the length of a bottle, with the top of the neck sticking out just a bit.olyaz on May 28, 2013
Is the back-piece the usual cheap, cardboard-thick (sometimes cardboard itself with vinyl on it) like on Ikea bookshelves and most others, or is it actual 1/4" thick wood paneling like the Avington Bookshelf from Target? I was pleasantly surprised with that shelf because of that and will now buy nothing with the thin back panel, so I'd like to know. Thanks.kreidol on Jan 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Than ks for your interest, unfortunately this information is not available from the manufacturer. overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 4, 2013
It is not cardboard, and perhaps is cheap, but really nice looking back. It is wood panel, two pieces taped together from the back, attaches by small screws.anna91 on Mar 28, 2013

Many thanksxpatinflorida on May 3, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
